Manchester United and Newcastle remaining Premier League fixtures compared with Liverpool as Champion League door throw wide open



Erik ten Hag and his Manchester United side face Wolves, Bournemouth, Chelsea and Fulham in their last four games.

Manchester United remain in pole position for next season’s Champions League qualification, despite mixed results – and another defeat – for them on this final day of the Premier League.

Liverpool continued their push into the top four with a sixth-placed spin win against Brentford at Anfield on Saturday, while sixth-placed Tottenham also grabbed three points. However, before putting on their boots for the match against West Ham, United received an encouraging boost.

High-flying Newcastle were beaten 2-0 at home to Arsenal when Erik ten Hag and his players had a chance to leapfrog them into third position. However, they were unable to do so and were beaten 1-0 by the Hammers as a David de Gea error proved costly and Said Benrahma settled the score.

The London Stadium defeat means United need three more wins to qualify for Europe’s marquee competition, regardless of other results elsewhere. Here’s our guide to the remaining fixtures they’ve compared against Newcastle, Liverpool, Tottenham and Brighton.

Liverpool and Newcastle’s remaining fixtures as Arsenal defeat opens door in top-four race

NEWCASTLE 0-2 ARSENAL: Martin Odegaard and a Fabian Schar own goal boosted the Gunners’ title hopes since 2004 and dimmed the Toon’s four aspirations

A breathtaking defeat for Newcastle, and another reminder that it’s tough to get the job done – those last seven points -.

So close, yet so far away, as Arsenal themselves know from their title fight, but still possible.

Can Newcastle cross the finish line, finish in the top four and reach the £80m Champions League mark?

That was a ridiculous question, a ridiculously high ambition in August. But the bar has been raised. Playing the Fantasy Champions League and choosing the best group stage is on hold for this week.

The Premier League picture looks a little less reassuring after only their second defeat in ten games from eight wins. Liverpool’s six-game winning streak means they are just three points behind after playing one game more.

That should be fine, right? Only the memories of withering in the last hurdle of the Carabao Cup final are still fresh. They have not been tested at this lofty level in the competition for 20 years.

The margins here were fine. Martin Odegaard’s 30m lawnmower through Sven Botman’s legs, a reminder of the ruthlessness required at this top level. As did the sloppy defense that allowed Gabriel Martinelli to make an uncontested 50-metre run in front of Fab Schar’s own goal.

The fate of Newcastle remains in their hands, but a defeat to Arsenal has opened the door to Liverpool

But Newcastle could have scored five more. Jacob Murphy hit the post after 70 seconds, Alexander Isak rattled the woodwork after the break. Schar was denied by a one-handed miracle save from Aaron Ramsdale.

The odds of winning the game came and went. Joe Willock had two weak shots when a curler hit the far post. Granit Xhaka’s final lunge out of the ditch blocked Willock at close range.

United had a stormy first swing which was marred by a three-minute VAR check, including referee Chris Kavanagh, who used the pitchside monitor, judging that Kiwior had failed to deal with Bruno Guimaraes’ shot on purpose.

Howe’s men pulled out all the stops to score and stay in the game, but so did Arsenal. It was high quality and Newcastle just have to keep up the intensity next weekend at Leeds.

Touchline prowler Mikel Arteta glowered and oozed aggression, as did his team. Eddie Howe stayed away from the emotion that sparked their clash at the Emirates.

A plane circled low over the cauldron of football. “Free all Saudi prisoners…” it read, a message for the Toon’s owners.

Arsenal took none.
